The advantage is that when a viewer clicks on it. It shows the same post as it appears on your timeline. As the user is taken to your page, this would create an opportunity to get more likes and chances for engagement.
3: Email Subscriptions
Email can be another way to engage. Email subscriptions come in handy at a time when you want to send directed messages. Be vary not to overload your clients’ emails with unwanted and unnecessary emails. Keep them to minimal and to most important and useful updates. No one wants to see the continuous promotional email in their inbox but special discount offers are a win-win situation.

People will like to follow your page and engage in healthy conversations when they see something that is current, relevant, and interesting. All your promotional content is never going to win any audience not it would engage them.
Don’t provide an excuse for your clients to stay away from your page. Look at the current news and issues in discussion. Analyze if they coincide with your philosophy, audience interest, or in general a human-angle story. Keep it neutral and simple. Controversial topics need a clear understanding and your stance should be clear enough as not to confuse your audience.
Keep your content a mix of all formats to keep the audience interest intact.

Timing matters when it comes to engagement. You will want to cash on at the time when the audience is readily available. Times, when public, national or religious events are happening less people, will be on social media. Thanksgiving dinner event, for example, is when people are not using smart devices rather they are busy in the family get together. So think about times when the audience is available and grab their attention.
